Walton and Sanders Ferry peninsula , Hendersonville,Tn

DSCN5599This area has everything from beautiful parks and full service marina's with plenty of restaurants and housing from apartments and condo's thru small single family houses up to waterfront estates. The north part is up at main street and sanders ferry road parallels Drakes creek as it flows toward the main stem of the Cumberland river and Old hickory lake. Once on Sanders ferry road just off main street there are gas stations, restaurants, and other small business's then you'll see Mallard point park on the left. It is one of the most busy of the ramps in the area. As you travel down further you'll pass two big full service marina's and then you turn left to stay on sanders ferry road and then you enter sanders ferry park . Which is a huge (several hundred acres) park with the biggest launch pad around.

Good shore fishing spot                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Overall there is at least five ramps in this area, and there is even a gas station all the way back in the peninsula.  There is even a retirement trailer park community right along the access road to Walton ferry park and amazingly right across the creek is a campground right next to newer Mc mansions.                                                                                                      
Looking across the creek at Walton ferry park is a longtime campground that has resisted the developers

There is always plenty of houses for sale in every price range and as you can see you have your choice of a wide variety of options to chose from. This is a much busier peninsula than Indian Lake what with the extra people coming into the restaurants, marina's, and other amenities that are offered here. Still, when you get off the two busy roads it is relativity quiet area..... if you like being close to the action, this is your spot!                                                                                                                                                                         Once again this peninsula allowed for commercial development whereas  Indian lake didn't.
